#1299 Clinical Value of Somatostatin Receptor Scintigraphy in the Management of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma
Introduction: Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC) is a rare form of thyroid cancer. It represents 5 to 10 % of these cancers. MTC grows from specialized thyroid cells called para-follicular cells, or C-cells that secrete a hormone called calcitonin. Its prognosis is usually good. Recurrences can occur, requiring lifelong surveillance.

#1300 Staging of Neuroendocrine Tumors: Value of Hybrid Imaging With 111In- Pentetreotide
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NET) are rare and can occur anywhere in the body. Ninety-eight percent of these tumors express the type 2 of somatostatin receptors, making possible the functional imaging of NET. 111In-labelled pentetreotide specifically binds to somatostatin receptors, with particular affinity to subtypes 2 and 5.

#606 Laparoscopic Resection of Primary Midgut Carcinoid Tumors
Introduction: Laparoscopic intestinal surgery is the preferable technique in the majority of intestinal surgical disorders. However, there is no series reported to date on laparoscopic resection of intestinal midgut carcinoid tumors (MCT) due to the rarity as well as the technical difficulties in resection of the large mesenteric root lymph node mass commonly found in these tumors, and the occasional difficulty in identifying the primary MCT. This is the first series reporting the results of laparoscopic resection of MCT.
